Lets Fish Pet Toy is a small fishing rod with a crochet stuffed squeaky toy that is sized to suit cats and small to large dogs that you 'fly fish' to play fetch with your dog. We of course chose the large dog size and waited for our package to arrive. We were to also receive a video and a review checklist to complete our review.
After almost a month and no toy, I emailed the company to find out if we were still on, I didn't receive a response. Then about two weeks later the toy finally came.
After a quick assembly of the mini fishing rod, running the cord for the line and attaching the toy, not two minutes into play the rod broke in half. I was quite discouraged and a bit angry that the fishing pole was made out of thin plastic and could snap so easy. Especially after ordering the large dog size and not being able to stand up to a 70+pound dog or two and was better suited for a cat or small dog.
Obviously the dogs never fetched the toy and were interested in the chase and catch of the squeaky prey and having a tug of war with it.
I don't believe the toy is intended for being a tug toy and our dogs are not designed to be retrievers, which made it a tough mix. So while the toy wasn't the best suited toy for our dogs, I still like the idea behind the toy that with a stronger pole and line I think the dogs would have a blast with it.
We couldn't give a recommendation if this toy would work for the a large retrieving dog or a dog who like to fetch, but do believe that with a little fly fish fetching you and your dog could enjoy a good game of fetch without leaving your chair.
This was a tough one for us, but I'd say between the lack of customer service, poor toy quality (for a large dog) and being a retrieving game without fetching dogs, we gave Lets Fish Pet Toy: 10 Paws out of 24. Mostly for the idea that I still think is great and has inspired me to make something similar and more suited for the 24 Paws of Love.
